Any suggestions on a keyboard that is fairly common and has Cherry MX blue switches or buckling springs? Been looking at the Scorpius M10 but I can only seem to find an overseas provider for it

What does OCN offer as a site?
What are infractions and warnings?

elitekeyboards.com ships their boards to europe, but the boards cost double what the Scorpius does

For BS, did you try ebay.co.uk? They've got several Model M's listed.

You can also ask for those boards in the marketplace on www.geekhack.org. There are plenty of people there in Europe that might have what you're looking for, and I'm sure most of the American guys there won't mind overseas shipping either.

Some of them have the old RJ (telephone/ethernet) style plug that plugs into those old terminals, and those models won't work on a PC. And yes you'll be able to program the extra keys with Autohotkey to do whatever you want.

For $50 you can get practially any older keyboard on ebay except the rare ones (like the Cherry Ergo Plus or Model M Mini). For new keyboards you're limited to the Scorpius M10 and ABS M1 (see first post for links).

Do you have an idea of what type of switches you'd like at least?
Hmm, I'm actually wondering if I can trying to increase my budget to. Was looking to get those Cherry blue's, sound perfect for what I need. Was looking at this, actually . Quite far from $50 but if it'll last 15 years, why not?

That's the spirit .

I'm using that one myself too. Well, I actually got the lettered one and bought the blank keycap set separately to keep the lettered set looking new. The only thing that sucks is that when buying the separate keycaps they don't have the matte finish on them, that only gets applied after they've been mounted to a board. So they are shiny. I guess it's kind of like buying pre-worn jeans, lol.

Good idea, and it looks like you already started a thread I haven't seen yet.

To change the title hit "edit" then "advanced".
